My Plus subscription expired a few weeks ago and I’ve not had chance to top it up, but those of you who regularly digest Sony’s monthly deluge of freebies can rejoice in the knowledge that this month’s avalanche has landed.
Yes, from today you can grab BioShock 2, Guardians of Middle Earth and Mortal Kombat – unless you live in Australia or Germany, where your spine ripping will be replaced by the somewhat more joyful Gotham City Imposters.
Guardians of Middle Earth is a bit of a catch actually for the service – it’s pretty new, good for Rings fans wanting more after The Hobbit and should hopefully boost the online numbers.
Jet Set Radio and Pinball Arcade will follow later this month, but – BEWARE! – today sees the removal of Batman: Arkham City, Bulletstorm and Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition, so if you’ve not yet downloaded them (or at least added them to your list) you’ll miss out.
I’m wondering how Plus will carry over to PlayStation 4 – there won’t be the library available to offer for free at first, so I’m curious how they’ll sell the idea…
